We love pictures, I would be showing everyone if I could do what you did. LOL

It's like real furniture grade and expensive looking. Why can't you live near me? hehe I need a 90g stand of similar quality.

Aint it the truth. And everyone here thinks the SW hobby is expensive. LOL I was just given a Delta table saw with Unifence and a extension table/router table because it didn't work. Put a new switch and start capacitor on it and for a total of $14.00 I got a $1,5000-$2,000 saw. But the rest of the tools were not that cheap. LOL

The stand looks great. Ceder is beutiful when done right and that my friend, is done right. Kudos.
